Achieved TWO Milestones Today
It's probably hypocritical of me to post a "personal achievement" blog since I usually ignore them from other bloggers, but it's my first one in the almost 7 months since I've been here, so I'm going to allow myself to do it. The rest of you can follow my usual lead and ignore it, although if you've gotten this far, you've likely chosen to ignore my advice to ignore me.
Today, I broke 3,000 points for the first time, AND got my 200-point lucky charm. I think I just got my 100-point charm just last week. Not bad for a guy who back in around Feb. 1st was ranked 0.09! I don't think I could get a rank that low again if I tried!
Speaking of ranking, it's currently 99.74. My highest was 99.81 briefly a few days ago. Here's a confession to all of you reading this (if you've stayed with me this far), largely, I don't even know what I'm doing. Granted, I don't think it's pure luck, or that I'm entirely clueless, but I find it unbelievable that I currently outrank fellow CAPPERS (is that even a word?) whose advice and picks I've been following for months, and are far more knowledgeable about this stuff than I am.
It reminds me of grade 12 math, where I simply couldn't grasp trigonometry in the least, and had a hot chick help me cram hours before the test. I ended up with the highest mark in the class. Ironically, the hot chick who helped me actually failed that test. LOL! It's like I stole her brain for a few hours.
So, cheers to me. I might have to celebrate tonight with a shot of Forty Creek Whisky (the smoothest Canadian Whisky I've ever found).
